My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Oregon
(I am not sure whether to post this question here, but it seems the most fitting at this time.)
I have been trying to figure out how to handle a collections agency in regards to an old debt and I have been reading conflicting articles and forum posts regarding tuition for a public college...
Is debt for college tuition (not a signed loan) treated the same as a non-dischargeable student loan?
I have read several articles that say that public school tuition debt can be (or is) treated as a student loan because tax payers cover the costs. I then read another article that said that the previous can be true, if you signed a promissory note, but is not treated as so if there was no note or papers signed, or cash advancement made to you by the college.
